levitating air mattress

Most homes have inflatable mattresses which can be very handy during sleepovers. When filled with air, hopping atop one of these things makes you feel lightweight. How about filling it with helium? Would it make you literally feel like sleeping on a cloud? In one of his videos, James Orgill of The Action Lab filled…

TreePod Canopy

Anyone who likes to relax is bound to love cozy hammocks. They keep you close to nature and they make you feel as though you’re resting on a cloud. The only downside of a hammock is that there isn’t enough space for more people to enjoy it at the same time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMGeIIiI98M&ab_channel=ProductHype That and a…

turning push pins

When it comes to turning objects on a lathe, crafts made of wood, resin, and paper seem to work best. This is because the materials mentioned are softer and easier to chip away with your tools piece by piece. How about a pile of push pins? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCvFgz8_6ro&ab_channel=CookWoodworks Drew from the Cook Woodworks YouTube channel has…

tesla autopilot roadtrip

With electric vehicles becoming more charismatic in this environment-conscious age, it’s hard not to resist the temptation to trade your normal, gas-guzzling car for one. But just how efficient is an electric car? Is there enough support on the road for such a vehicle? And just how efficient is its built-in auto-drive feature, if it…

wooden butterfly knife

A balisong, or a butterfly knife as it is more commonly known, is a much cooler version of a traditional pocketknife. Originating in the Philippines, this nifty tool can be spun and twirled which makes the simple act of opening and closing the knife look that much more awesome. Most butterfly knives are dangerous (I…

food in a submarine

Life on a submarine can feel quite cramped, to say the least. When submariners are stuck underwater in a metal tube for months, you wonder just how they survive in those extreme conditions. The answer to most of those survivalist questions has to do with the submarine itself. Thanks to the built-in reactor, the warship…

rubber banded fruit

You’ve most likely seen videos on the Internet of people stretching numerous rubber bands over a watermelon to the point where the fruit explodes. We already know that isn’t a myth, but will the same experiment work on other fruits? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0Ao9d17hM0&ab_channel=TKOR Calli and Nate from The King of Random decided to empty a supermarket of…

killer key

For those of us who aren’t that well-versed in the language of lock picking, a “killer key” could prevent anyone from accessing a lock ever again. The way it accomplishes this locking process is pretty cool. Along with the biting of the killer key is a single groove that captures all the lock’s pins. There…

coffee mug out of coffee beans

For others, coffee is an essential part of their lives. Some folks can’t even start their day without that hit of caffeine in their system! If you are one of those coffee addicts who treat coffee like gold dust, you’ll probably love this mug made entirely out of coffee beans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrclqK9YKKY&ab_channel=PrestonMillerWoodWorking Preston Miller WoodWorking explained…

mini nminecraft cave

Minecraft has been the source of inspiration for many creations, from in-game libraries all the way to real-life blocks. Speaking of real-life blocks, these tiny Minecraft worlds made by YouTuber WUZU clay are probably some of the smallest recreations of the video game I’ve ever seen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZyLCzpl3hM&ab_channel=WUZUclay I mean, just look at this tiny cave…

hand sanitizer invisible flame

Have you ever accidentally set your hand sanitizer on fire? No? Well, good for you. You’re probably using it right! But in any case you are wondering, yes, that cleaning liquid is actually fuel for the fire. https://youtu.be/o_S2dgGJGnI Science YouTuber Steve Mould shows that igniting hand sanitizer creates an almost invisible flame. Dim the lights…

matchstick rocket kit

It isn’t the Fourth of July anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a little explosive mayhem! Everyone loves fireworks (except for, you know, the ones who’ve been injured by them), and making them smaller for the sake of portability is the best way to enjoy them any day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFyKgmnCF-8&ab_channel=TKOR Inspired by a…

keymacs keycap making

Keymacs is a small, family-based company that specializes in making hand-crafted keyboard kits. While their production isn’t quite as automated or streamlined as industry giants like Razer or Logitech, the fact that they put so much effort into their made-to-order keyboards gives them an edge unlike any other. The video below delves into the three-day…

swingly

As a boy, I spent most of my formative years playing with action figures and reading comic books. Nonetheless, I also got to play house with my female cousins when they wanted to. Who says you have to be a girl to play house, anyway? We would use plastic toys, paper, and sometimes real cutlery…

climbing wind turbine

Have you ever seen a wind turbine and wondered how in the world people keep them in good condition? Well, simple: they climb the dang things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWSckm8zTc8&ab_channel=TomScott A few months ago, Tom Scott climbed one of Octopus Energy’s wind turbines in the UK. This wasn’t a luxury trip, however. After climbing the 50-meter tall ladder…

drinkie

Owning a pet means a boatload of responsibilities. This is why getting a short break from all those tasks (or at least making them easier to manage) feels like a huge relief. We already saw it with the auto-filling litterbox on Kickstarter. Nonetheless, our pet’s doo-doo isn’t the only thing we need to mind when…

bank notes invisible ink

You might not notice it because of how fast it leaves your hands, but paper bills have some neat tricks up their sleeves. Everyone knows about serial numbers and security ribbons, but did you know certain national banknotes (US Dollars included) have a layer of invisible ink that makes them even harder to counterfeit? That’s…

foreverpen

It’s amazing that even with so many multi-tools on the market, very few of them have the one thing most people need: a writing apparatus. I mean, what good is a mini-ruler/blade/tape measure when you don’t have any marking tool to use with them? With this, the folks at World’s Tiniest have decided to make…

printer scam

I’m happy we live in a prevalent digital age. Things are pretty instant now to the point that you don’t need to move a muscle just to have a specific task done. Need to sweep the floor? There’s the Roomba. Need breakfast ready when you wake up? There are self-timer kitchen appliances. So, how come…

magnapot

Most desk jobs nowadays involve staying indoors in front of a computer screen. While this is fine for introverts and shut-ins, it doesn’t bode well for those who long for the great outdoors. So why not bring a small and manageable piece to your workspace? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB1t82WmC-s&ab_channel=Amazing Magnapot is a series of modular ceramic pots which…

flagship light

There’s just something about the smokey, outdoorsy smell and flavor of well-grilled foods that get me. But as summer ends and the weird weather approaches, chances to cook on an outdoor grill become few and far between. So instead of hoping for good weather, why not bring the grill inside your home? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLpjpgpzwWw&ab_channel=THE3BEST Flagship Light…

car window experiments

When I was four, I had that stupid idea of stopping the blades of an electric fan… using my tiny fingers. Really just a child curious about things. Long story short, I wasn’t able to point at things for a while. But, the good news is I still have that finger (in case you were…

mark rober dominator

Mark Rober, a former NASA and Apple engineer, always has something up his sleeve. This time, his newest project is a domino-stacking robot he nicknamed “Dom” (short for “Dominator”). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HEfIJlcFbs&t=130s&ab_channel=MarkRober As said, Dom has one specific function: to stack as many dominoes as fast and as accurately as possible without a single misplaced piece. Why,…

human centrifuge

Even with the human body’s natural ability to adapt, we aren’t exactly made to withstand too much g-force. You can chalk this up to humans’ inability to fly or run at supersonic speeds. So, why do some folks even bother going to high-G training? Well, it’s to up their g-tolerance before getting in an aircraft.…

minecraft wooden pickaxe irl

Ask anyone who has played Minecraft for 5 minutes and they’ll tell you how things start off. You are dropped into a random world, then punch some trees to get wood, and you make yourself some wooden tools on a workbench. Well, the question is: can a wooden pickaxe break anything in reality? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEz_2spRbek&ab_channel=LouisWeisz To…

underground bunker with spoons

You can deny it all you want but at some point in your life, you probably thought of digging a hole to (or through) the center of the Earth. There are those western folks who even believe that with enough hard work and dedication at digging a hole, they could pave the way for the…
